Building NASA’s NEXT Generation Spacesuits

NASA is partnering with industry for revolutionary NEW spacesuits for exploration like we’ve never seen before. 
 
These personalized spaceships will be more high-tech and modern, provide a better fit for a larger range of sizes, adapt to a more diverse group of astronauts and have better protection from the harsh environment of space. With enhanced mobility, our astronauts will be more nimble than ever before. 
 
New spacesuits will be used at the International Space Station, during Artemis lunar surface missions, at Gateway orbiting the Moon, and will prepare us for humanity’s next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.
